I'm pretty sure Michigan does not require you to list minor traffic offenses. Here's what last year's app says:

Michigan Application wrote:Have you ever been convicted of a crime, including misdemeanors and infractions, but excluding minor traffic violations, or are such criminal charges pending or expected to be brought against you?


I got scared there for a second so I went back and looked it up haha. This is last year's though


haha, fair enough. I looked at my submitted apps and you are correct. Not sure why I thought Michigan was the one I submitted the addendum to.

Don't most apps. specifically say except minor traffic? Also, how the hell do you even look up your driving history? I've had 4 tickets, all expunged through traffic school. Don't know exactly what each was though... I think there was a rolling through stop sign but I don't remember. Haven't owned a car in years.

Most do, some require you list all tickets. You can get a driving history from the state police in your state usually, or various online sites.

You thought it was going to be free? Getting public records is expensive. They probably pay a few grand per year per county they have access to. Even police departments pay for access to the system.
